Designed to block humidity and oxygen, this solution helps to extend the preservation of products by up to 24 months, while food products packaged in this way retain the highest level of quality. PACCOR will unveil this innovation at the ROSUPAK trade show, which will take place in Moscow (Russia) from 14 to 18 June 2011.
The PACCOR Group has developed a multi-layer plastic-barrier sheet intended to package food products that do not require cool storage for preservation. The shelf life of products packaged with this coextruded sheet can be extended by as much as two years. PACCOR will present its novel packaging solution at the ROSUPAK trade fair, in Moscow, in mid-June.
PACCOR offers four basic reel structures, which are intended for FFS (Form/Fill/Seal) machines. The PS/Evoh/PE structure is intended for the packaging of stewed fruit, fresh fruit, cold cuts and desserts, while the PP/Evoh/PP structure, which is microwavable and sterilizable, is designed for the packaging of baby food, pre-prepared food and pet food. The PS/PE structure is suitable for cheese, fish and for industrial applications, and the PS/Evoh/PS form is designed for the packing of fresh products.
As each food company has its own specific requirements, PACCOR also manufactures made-to-measure sheets in accordance with its customers’ specific requirements and in order to achieve a perfect match with their packaging machines.
In order to increase barrier properties, PACCOR is also able to design a sheet made up of nine different layers, incorporating an added barrier to protect the packaged product from light. The thickness of each layer and its formulation can be adapted upon request. Sheets can also be produced in a two-colour version, with white on the inside and a colour on the outside: this is designed to meet the growing demand from companies to make packaging relevant from a marketing standpoint.
In terms of equipment, PACCOR has a fleet of high-quality modern machines, which are fitted with the latest technology, such as autoflex, and an online thickness-measurement tool. Thanks to its machines, PACCOR can provide a constant and accurate spread of the master layers (EVOH, PE and bonding agents).
PACCOR specialises in the development and manufacturing of high-quality packaging solutions for the consumer-goods sector, and has a wide range of products that include containers, lids, trays and coextruded sheets for food and non-food applications.
PACCOR has over 1,000 employees working in four countries, as well as five factories.PACCOR will attend the ROSUPAK trade show, which will take place in Moscow (Russia) from 14 to 18 June 2011.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
